that would have sent billions of dollars to help superstorm sandy recovery efforts across the northeast. the senate approved a $60 billion bill last week but the house decided not to bring up any other legislation and that enraged house lawmakers from new york. >> everybody played by the rules, except tonight, when the rug was pulled out from under us, absolutely inexcusable, absolutely indefensible. we have a moral obligation to hold this vote, the people out of their homes, the people who are cold, without food, the people who have lost their jobs, they don't have the time to wait. >> disaster knows no boundaries. this body has acted with speed and compassion to help americans throughout the country and disaster after disaster, dysfunction, mr. speaker, in this congress, shouldn't result in punishing victims of sandy in new york, new jersey, connecticut and pennsylvania. this is a sad day. >> the delegations of those states are angry. the new congress starts tomorrow, and all bills start from scratch, but house appropriation chairman hal rogers is not concerned about quickly getting m

who are watching us around the country on wgn america and on the web. victims of superstorm sandy will have to wait for the next session of congress to see if they'll get billions of dollars in federal aid. 2013 will still end up being a little bit more costly. late last night the house approved a measure passed earlier by the senate. extending unemployment benefits. a clear victory for president obama the campaign on promises to only raise taxes on the wealthiest americans. i also know all that raises taxes on the wealthiest 2 percent of americans. how this a had a severe impact on families across america. they still will take a financial hit in 2013. at least 2 percent more in payroll taxes. cutting into most workers' paychecks. it will hit illinois and is especially hard. >> is a double whammy. they're getting another tax hike, the 2 percent payroll tax. for a median house and come they might be saving 5000-ton thousand dollars a year. this is $2,100 less. while everybody is happy that the worst was avoided many are disgusted at how the entire ordeal turned up. the little guy

region's public transit and housing base as a result superstorm sandy has been addressed -- tough morning. we started with a hearing on the loss of our ambassador from libya. those challenges, just had opening ceremony for senator o inouye line in state and now the devastation the northeast region -- has been a tough day but we appreciate our witnesses being here to shed some light and hopefully some commitment by our colleagues to meeting our challenges. as you all know sandy's destructive force overwhelmed the region particularly in new jersey and new york and the result is massive unprecedented damage, unprecedented but this was our second hurricane in two years and we expect extreme weather like this to become more common for our region. because we need to prepare for the next storm is not enough to spend our time today simply discussing how we restore our housing and transit infrastructure to their vulnerable free storm condition. in my view now is the time to determine what actions we must take in order to build back the region in a way that makes us less of vulnerable in future

of superstorm sandy? >> absolutely not. i haven't heard of any organized effort. i heard some of my colleagues on the republican side say they'd like to give a lot less than the $60.4 billion. but we thought we had the votes that would pass the amendment to make it a $60.4 billion bill. >> thank you. appreciate your time. >> thank you. >>> up next, hillary clinton's expected to make a full recovery after doctors discovered a blood clot near her brain. the same might not be true of her harshest critics who accused her of faking illness to avoid testifying about benghazi. that's ahead. this is "hardball," the place for politics. i called the car myself. i'll give you a lift, sir. who are you again? daniels, sir. accounts. who's this? this is daniels. key player over in accounts. ♪ daniels. director of accounts.

they're going approve a superstorm sandy package of relief. why wouldn't they? and to have this delay go off the clock is a further wounding of the party. >> it is. and like you just said, michael, it's self-inflicted. i think everybody bipartisanwise would say this is going to happen. why are we delaying it? let's get it done. you've heard the rhetoric back and forth of the senate bill coming over here. and i think the -- what we have in place here in the house, we're actually going to clean that up. make it disaster related. take all the pork, take those senate earmarks out of there. make it a clean bill and do what it's intended to do. help the people. my constituents. the residents of new jersey, new york. that's what the job is and putting this off is only going to hurt us in the long run. michael, i know you know the delaware region well. the jersey shore is a billion dollar industry. if that's not close to up and running when it comes spring and summertime, that's going to take a hit. >> let me ask a question about your governor. soon chris christie will stand for re-election.
the victims of superstorm sandy. that particular move has left some new york lawmakers furious with their fellow colleagues for failing to take action. >> i truly feel betrayed this evening. i've left this floor -- i left this floor with an understanding that this bill was going to be brought to the floor. one of congress' most basic responsibilities is to help families, communities, businesses recover. >> and now i have to go home and tell them their new year's gift is that they're going to wait even longer, even longer for something they should have had over a month ago. >> the bill calls for more than $60 billion to be directed to the relief effort. and it already passed the senate, but now the house must way wait for the new congress to be sworn in before any further action can be taken. >>> the d.c. council is set to begin its new session today by officially welcoming its newest member. david grasso, an independent won the at-large council seat back in november. he has said education and ethics reform will be his priorities. five incumbent councilmembers will also be swor

after superstorm sandy will have to keep waiting. good morning, ip aaron gilchrist. >> imt eun yang. let's take a live look outside right now. about 4:59. cold start. 37 degrees. you said you saw flurries. >> just one or two o maybe coming down. let's check in with meteorologist tom kierein to see what you can expect today, tom. >> i saw number three and number four. very few flurries trying to reach the ground on this cold 2nd day of january. starting off with a lot of cloudiness. the areas south and east of washington, the pink color, they're getting a few sprinkles and flurries mixed in. that's in southern calvert county, across st. mary's, into the northern neck of virginia. southern part of the eastern shore getting flurries right now. there's another batch of flurries trying to reach the ground in montgomery county across the potomac into northern fairfax and southeastern loudoun county. this is all drifting off to the east and we're going to have a little sunshine breaking out later this morning as cold air continues to come in on an increasingly blustery north wind later today.
officials that hit the ground when superstorm sandy hit explained that if you didn't get money into the hands of these small businesses almost immediately, then most likely they would go under. if you don't start rebuilding right away, people start to become depressed and they lose hope. let's not even discuss the economic impact. so to delay this vote even for another day is something that will resonate not only with the people that have been affected and are suffering and have lost everything, but i think it will resonate with the american people for a long time, and i think it will make them wonder what we are here for and what is the role of the federal government, what is the role of the congress, and maybe most importantly, can they trust us? so it is with a heartfelt apology that i apologize to my constituents, to my fellow new yorkers in need, those in new jersey, connecticut, and pennsylvania. i did all that i could. i will not stop, i will not relent, and i will continue to push for this vote to come as quickly as possible, but there is no rhyme or reason and it is in
